Ever wondered what those codes on your delivery book meant ?
You know the ones that tell you what the color is etc etc.

Well I found a resource which I am assuming to be right and I have pasted it into a spreadsheet to share. Might be worth a sticky Mr. Zeitgeist !

Thanks for posting this list. Am presently working on 300E for my grandson who is serving in USMC. Very impressive vehicle. It is great to be able to confirm what all the codes on the data plate mean.

I have some questions on the VIN Decoder for my 1995 E320 Convertible. There are some options for my car that I do not know what they mean as follows:

1. #283 - Draft Deflector - Is this the mesh assembly that cuts down on drafts when the top is down?
2. #494 - Version for USA - What is that?
3. #634 and #636 - Deletion of the First Aid Kit and Warning Triangle - Were all convertibles like this?
4. #805 - Change of Model Year - The last figure showing the new model year. My build date is 11/1995 and the last digit in the VIN is 5. Did the Mercedes model years run like the traditional US model years? Sept to Aug?
6. #916 - Vehicles for Hot Countries - Additional Parts. What is this?

Also does anyone offer repro window stickers? Is there any way to find out what dealer the car was delivered to?

Thanks.

#1 Yes, wind deflector

#2 model certified for sale in USA, i.e. DOT approval such as the bumpers, lights, mph speedo, emissions, etc, etc, etc

#3 Don't know about the first aid kit, but US spec cars never got the warning triangle found on the Euro spec cars

#4 No idea

#6 Vehicle equipped for hot climates, such as heavy duty fan clutch, upgraded cooling system, etc.

the 'hot countries' option includes a fuel cooler connected to the A/C for the fuel being pumped back to the gas tank. this helps prevent vapor lock in 100F+ weather.
That's pretty awesome. Akin to the modern Dodge Challenger Demon.

I would imagine EVERY car fitted w/AC would show that 'hot coutries' option?
